Connecting you to everyone you need to help raise your child.
32 kids with special needs will auction their paintings to raise funds for a vocational training hub.
This training hub is going to be set up for the older youths with special educational needs or disabilities such as cognitive impairment and developmental disabilities.
Additional funds will be donated to the Special Olympics Singapore.
Each painting represents the artistic journey of these little artists.
The artists express their thoughts and feelings through vibrant colours and a unique art technique.
It's also a platform where they can voice out their unspoken motivation to help themselves and fellow special needs peers.
This art exhibition will be the first of many fundraising events for this cause.

The sea animals in the artworks depicts issues such as being caught in nets left behind by fishing trawlers.
The kids were inspired by the Australian aborigine art form, Ghost Net art.
Using acrylic paints and recycled materials, these artworks represent the details of marine life.
Also, the paintings are overlaid with real fishing nets!
These nets are nets that have been left or lost in the ocean by fishermen.
Ghost nets can entangle sea animals which restricts them from moving. It can then cause starvation, laceration, infection and suffocation.
